When ten-year-old Manda investigates noises in the night she discovers that her home is a stop on the Underground Railroad.  Her precious time with Hannah, a ten-year-old escaped slave, teaches her much about both friendship and the power of literacy.

This exquisite story is a treasure for teachers and children who care about justice and the power of the pen.  How good it is to have a deep and significant historic novel that is easily accessible to readers of early chapter books.” --Dr. Lucy Calkins, Reading & Writing Project, Columbia University Teachers College
